Rush Hour (Ross LaManna and Jim Kouf)

In this film, directed by Brett Ratner, when the consul's daughter is kidnapped in the US, Chinese Detective Lee is sent to help the FBI with the investigation. Not wishing for his help the FBI hire LAPD officer Carter to keep him out of trouble. However, with both Lee and Carter keen to be involved in the investigation, they set out on their own to find the girl, overcoming both bad guys and cultural differences.
This is yet another buddy cop movie where different partners must overcome their differences to solve a crime. Here the main differences being Black and Chinese cultures.
Starring: Jackie Chan, Chris Tucker, Ken Leung, Tom Wilkinson, Tzi Ma

Why I loved this film: I am not a big fan of fight scenes, however, this film is different, since it is mainly about two cultures clashing and what they can learn from each other. It also teaches us not to judge by country or looks, for each person is different.
We must, furthermore, consider the hilarious moments that bring both characters to their main goal at the end of the movie. Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker worked well together and made me laugh all the way from the beginning to the very end!
